Ryan was a devoted husband and father who passionately loved his wife, Brooke, and children, Lexi and Austin.
Almost as much as he loved his family, he loved baseball -- and with it his extended baseball and CSUF Titan family. Ryan was a member of the CSUF Titan baseball team, played for Team USA in 1998 and played professional baseball for nearly a decade. When he retired, he began coaching the next generation of players.
Funny and charming, Ryan was the blue-eyed guy-next-door. While he made everyone feel like a friend, he was fiercely loyal and protective of those he cared about. We were lucky to have had him and he is already greatly missed!
Now it's time we honor the life he lived by coming around those he loved most: Brooke, Lexi and Austin.
This GoFundMe is being established to help cover future and unforseen expenses for Brooke and his children. 100% of funds will be given to Brooke Fessler Owens to use accordingly.
On behalf of the Owens family, thank you.
Information regarding memorial services will be announced in the coming weeks.
